My version of the "Urchin" beret from ysolda.com, in size Large since I have a large noggin. I really like the pattern, and it works up quickly (I made this one in an evening). I used 2 skeins of Sean Sheep Wildwood in "Teak Smoke", with a little bit left over. I have to say, I liked it more than I expected. It was easy to work with, and I like the texture (I think it kind of looks like stones). 

I'm hoping that some more blocking will keep it from falling flat on the top.

Thanks for looking! Smiley

The beret looks great on you! Wow, that wool looks hard to knit. I like the colors, too.

Thank you. Smiley  I expected that yarn to be a nightmare - it's a thick and thin single plied with a loopy novelty single - but I didn't find it bad at all.
